    We have had the dishwasher for 6 years with no problem, not sure what the breaker is rated at. How would I chack that?

    Not sure what the breaker is rated at, have had the same dishwasher for 6 years with no problems though. We did have the kettle blow a fuse a couple of weeks ago but replaced the fuse and that is fine now.

    Hi

    Just checked fuse box ratings are as follows:

    TRIP: 63A 30Ma

    FUSE: 203/400V

    On the box itself it says 240V/50Hz 100A max



    Tried swapping to different power outlet but same result. Interersting thing is that when you power the machine on it is ok, but when only you shut the door the power is tripped.

    Strange thing is the fuse does not blow - just the main power switch is tripped off. Happens as soon as the door is closed. Presume it must be a short somewhere

First off, lets make sure its not the wiring in your house. disconnect the dishwasher and plug in something else and see if it trips the fuse. also what amps is the breaker rated at?

    When the machine is set to off and you shut the door does the fuse blow? Also, there is a shut off switch in the door latch that prevents the washer from running when the door is opened, thus preventing objects like kids from getting injured, as well as water from making a mess. If by shutting the door the fuse blows instantly, you have a dead short somewhere. Be careful.

Suddenly I have no power to my dishwasher. I checked my main house electrical fuses and they seem fine. Is their another fuse in the washer itself to check?


Do some more experiments...Check power is getting to the power point at the back of machine (maybe plug in a lamp or something if you don't have a multi-meter), check external cable for damage (while not plugged in). Is there any signs of power at all? Any lights that come on or beeps made? If your model doesn't have lights to begin with, it could be a problem in the trip switch in the door for example. There probably is an internal fuse... only problem is that if it did blow, it might have for a reason... keep investigating

hi - i would tend to think that theres an electrical problem with the machine, as most dishwashers will start with the drain operations before commencing any cycle - the drain pump may well be the cause..

My dishwasher doesn't start. When I press start button the light turns down and every appliances turn off. kindly advice if it is related to electrical system or not


If the main circuit TRIPS off the moment the dish washer is started , then it is possible that there is a heavy short within the washer.
To find out the reason you will need to discconnect the power to the washer, the disconnect the power to the controller unit, the motor and the inlet vavle. Using a multimeter you can checck for short in the circuit. If so isolate the circuit.
Now reconnect and see if the power trips, is so isolate one by one the circuit till you come to the failed component. It can be the power controller, valve, motor, capacitor or surge protector.

Dishwasher is 'tripping' electricity to the house fuseboard as soon as water heating begins in any cycle - cannot locate thermostat to test ?


This can be due to the fact that the heaters draw up more current than required and so trips the circuit. it will be important to remove and check the heaters, check if the contactors are faulty that feed supply to the heaters. Also if the trip is a ELCB- then with some leak in the circuit , motor, heaters, the circuit will trip. Hence check the electrical, check the ground on your dishwasher. Use an external ground and check

Power overload swith in the house has started tripping when the dishwasher is started


Is this happening only now! If it was working OK earlier and tripping now only it may be due to some electrical fault inside the machine.

Switch off all the high power appliances and try the dish washer. If it works you have to check the breaker overall power rating!

If it trips during dish washer ON, the fault could be in the heater circuit of your machine. Heater Insulation would have become weak etc.

Faulty Diplomat Dishwasher - tripping mains fuse


Hello,

My dishwasher a diplomat 12 program (hja8640) was doing exactly the same where every now and again when turned on at the plug it would trip. After engineers coming out several times and failing to fix it, they condemed it. New one was supplied, however did exactly the same thing. The electrician came back, checked the RCD power breaker and this was fine. It was then discovered that some dishwashers and washing machines send out a lot of earth leakage, combine this with other appliances on in the house can be enough to trip.

Soloution. The electrician removed the kitchen circut from the RCD breaker and intalled another breaker RCD just for the kitcehn loop, this therefore means that the kitchen has a seperate trip from the rest of the house, and touch wood, has solved the problem. This mind you has taken about three months to work out so i hope it saves you some time.

Always use a fully qualified electrician though.

Thanks.
